Hi guys,

Having trouble with my xbox 360 trying to see my PC.  I am trying to use Windows media player with my 360 so i can play music etc on my xbox.  But when i go on my xbox to see my PC it cant find it.  Ive done all the steps necessary like enable media sharing on wma etc.  My xbox is connected wired which runs through my houses powerline downstairs to my asus router which is connected to my dlink modem/router.  PC connected to asus.  I think it is not recieveing an ip address from dhcp server.

i had no end of problems using my 360 on ethernet over power, ended up running a network cable down the side of the house and through the wall because it just got so unreliable.

upnp should most likely be enabled. unpn is a acronym for universal plug and play. If you turn upnp on and plug it into your pc while the xbox360 is on and the pc is loged in as a user then they should find each other. Otherwise im shure that Microsoft have phone numbers for stuff relating to xbox360 that are free or windows helpdesks? just call one of there helpdesks and say that either your xbox or windows is broken. Remember they are there to help us lol. Even if they dont know it :D lol

Not sure if you using a laptop or a biometric reader but I had a similar problem and scoured the internet and found that if you disable the biometric software it magically starts to work.  Something to do with the software wanting authentication but actually doesnt prompt.  ther is a KB article on it but cant remember what it is.  Mine works great now
